The ENERGUARD™ was installed in May 2009 and controls the automatic Start Stop, Lead Lag and Fuel/Air Modulation of the boilers. Six (6)
Zone Valves regulate the heat through out different parts of the building. The ENERGUARD™ controls the valve modulation to each zone using feedback from wireless temperature sensors placed inside tenant apartments. The Resident Manager sets the zone temperature from a PC and monitors the temperature through out the day and night via a web browser. A weather station on the roof of the building tracks wind speed, wind direction, RH% and Outdoor Air Temperature. On high windy cold days the Resident Manger increases space temperature settings in the zone most impacted by severe weather conditions. This has reduced tenant complaints and reduced fuel consumption in excess of 20%.
Each year the system is expanded to include additional mechanical equipment in the building including Gas Booster Pump, Stack Induced Fan System, Sump Pump Overfill, Leak Detection, Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, Gas Leak Detection and Vacuum Steam Control. Further expansion of the system will include Card Access and Lighting Control.
